Estuary, a characteristically atmospheric monochrome etching by Norman Ackroyd, captures the view across the Stour Estuary, a body of water that borders two counties. Depicted from Manningtree on the Essex side of the estuary, the scene is viewed across the water looking north towards Suffolk. The location is about a mile downriver from Flatford Mill in Suffolk, where Constable produced many of his greatest works.
This limited edition etching was made using the sugarlift technique, which gives the image a wash-like quality. The plate was produced in Norman Ackroyd’s studio in Bermondsey, London, from drawings he had made at the site.
All proceeds from sales of this work go directly to support the non-profit-making areas of the Royal Academy, particularly the RA Schools.
